Kathy Stevens in the Huff Post

Kathy Stevens pens a story in The Huffington Post about veganism.

On Thursday, December 16, Kathy Stevens, founder and director of Catskill Animal Sanctuary, posted an essay on The Huffington Post titled, “Talking Tofurkey: What Would It Take to Change Your Diet?” In it, Stevens says that the holidays are a time to reflect on the year past, and she encourages readers to consider how compassionately they lived in 2010, especially in regards to eating animal. She addresses the common excuses why people choose to not become vegan, and counters them with information both about agribusiness and the environment. Stevens closes with a message of compassion and resources for readers who are interested in learning more about veganism.
